Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fascinating . . . Wolfe has always been a keen observer of contemporary true crime; here she has delved deeper into history to disinter a quintessential con man.” —Publishers Weekly

“A first-rate blending of true-crime, character-study and history [that] kept me riveted from the first word to the last.” —Susan Isaacs, New York Times–bestselling author of Compromising Positions

“With her customary reportorial skill, Linda Wolfe gives us a ringside seat at what must surely have been one of the most fascinating murder trials in 19th century America. . . . A wonderfully racy and illuminating slice of pre-tabloid tabloid history.” —Molly Haskell, author of Love and Other Infectious Diseases

“Wolfe has clearly done her research, but she’s also a fine storyteller, teasing out the details of who did what and how while preserving the suspense.” —Los Angeles Times

“[Linda Wolfe] captures the tenor and texture of the times, the prevailing moods and opinions, and delivers them to the reader without breaking stride.” —Kirkus Reviews
